This has been a week from L'Inferno, what with the power going out for 30 hours two nights ago in our local thundersnow, and a dear friend going back into the hospital, and a valued client needing her document ASAP, and she did mean NOW.
So tonight was the first time I've had to pay thorough attention to all my favorite blogs (the ones listed down the right side). I've kept up with the political ones, but they're not the ones that give me so much joy and fun. And look what I found!!
Dear Non-Working Monkey announced a caption contest on January 17 for THIS PHOTOGRAPH, and the challenge was irresistible.
So I entered the caption, "Oboy! I'm not dead yet!" and about FIVE days ago, Non-Working Monkey announced it was the winning caption!!!!
So....to everyone out there who enters contests, I say "Hang in there!" Persistence pays!! This is the first thing I've won since I won a portable radio in a Tom Mix "Name Tom's New Dog" contest back when I was 9. That's so long ago I can't remember the name of Tom Mix's first dog, but it and the puppy were collies. I named the puppy "McShawn" (sounds like MIX at first) and it was good for second prize. I rode around for maybe two weeks with that big red radio playing in a special basket attached to the handlebars of my bike. After that, I don't know what happened to it. Probably my brother took it.
